    The voice-acting meanwhile features a variety of accents and the sound effects adequately portray the stark reality of a strange world.

    There is much to saviour and overcome for the discerning player, but for others be wary, as this release does not take prisoners.

    PixelJunk SideScroller is definitely a gem in the arcade shooter genre's crown. A bold visual and space age soundtrack are definitely the games selling point but for PixelJunk lovers, the experience is simply too short.

    Doki Doki Universe isn’t going to appeal to everyone, it isn’t a game that pushes the limits of what is possible, but it is a nice family friendly game that you can go back to time and time again.

    The gameplay is expertly refined to such a degree that little more improvement can be achieved. Now all we need is the actual atmospheric experience to be up to par.

    What Crackdown 2 lacks in depth, it makes up in destructive fun.

    Scribblenauts is a great idea, with some questionable execution, and some laughable design decisions.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Offers very little above the original Playstation 2 version.
    • 87 Metascore

    It’s undoubtedly a bold (if not brazen) attempt to entertain, and while Gamestyle found itself striving to collect every last item from the first title, it is hard to see the same happening with this one. Which leaves its technical achievements looking rather muted.

    Overall there is much to enjoy within Hydrophobia Prophecy, which in its new guise remains a mixed experience. With its attractive price currently on the PlayStation Network, Hydrophobia Prophecy offers more value than many current releases.

    While the execution and presentation is undoubtedly better than last year (gimmicky rhythm-sections aside), the fact remains that the current crop of WWE superstars is dull and uninspiring.

    Gamestyle found itself continually muttering "one more round" despite having completed our fifth one in a row. If it can make golf interesting, it must be doing something right.

    It's quite sad when what we have here is a solid beat em up that really deserves quite a bit of attention. It's not the best fighting game on the PS2, but for the budget price which it's being released at, it's certainly worth a shot.

    There's absolutely no question as to the somewhat obfuscated way in which the learning curve charts itself. Still, when you finally do get to grips with the controls, there's the subtle and atmospheric visuals, a Richard Jacques score and genuinely thrilling narrative to commend it.

    One thing you cannot criticise Square Enix for is taking this direct sequel lightly as there's been a thorough spring clean on all fronts. A much improved gaming experience but is at the same time hampered by its ties to the past. The characters remain uninteresting and a great villain makes an RPG worth all the hours of work. If Square Enix continue to listen to criticism then there's hope for another classic entry in the Final Fantasy series one day.

    Sky Force represents good value and is fun and challenging. However it isn't without its faults, with maybe an option to turn auto-fire on and off being a nice addition. In the main though this is another excellent addition to the Minis library, which continues to produces excellent titles, yet continues to be very under-rated.

    The length may be an issue to some, but while it lasts The Mindgate Conspiracy is immensely enjoyable, and in retrospect ideally pitched.

    There isn’t anything else like it on the DS, and with various multiplayer modes and plenty of gold medals to earn, it will keep you busy for quite a while.

    To date this is the best example of what the genre can offer and is an ideal starting point for those interested in the science of modern warfare.

    Minor grumbles, which hardly undermine the effusive charm and proven appeal of the Disney licence(s). As a gift for hyperactive siblings, it hits the spot. As an Extreme Skate Adventure, it lacks the power of 'X'. Tony Hawk, perhaps?

    R.U.S.E. is a refreshing real-time strategy game that works well on a console.

    It feels cheap and tacky, missing things you'd hope for and things you'd expect, and the single player mode is terrible. Still, try as they might, they've not managed to stop poker being great fun, especially with friends.

    As a solo game, Guitar Hero On Tour is a worthy addition to the series.

    Gamestyle still has concerns over the longevity of what could be a glorified Wiimote training session; but we were surprised at how much fun is here for the short term at least. It’s shallow, yet immensely playable, and a great introduction to this revolutionary system.

    At the increasingly regular price point of 1200 points it’s hard to recommend Marvel Vs Capcom 2 to everyone. People who live, sleep and breathe fighting games will snap it straight up, others should be a bit more cautious. This isn’t the friendliest fighter around.

    For many, though, there’ll be a point where the learning process feels too much like work, the subject matter is off-putting, or the technical ceiling is just too high to warrant the effort. Find a friend who is at the same level of (in)competence as you though and you can at least have the most ridiculous scrap of your life.

    Extremely playable.

    It may take a while to click, but once it does H.A.W.X is certainly an entertaining ride. It may not have the variety required for multiple playthroughs, it will however entertain you through to the conclusion.

    If this is your first foray into the VP world then you’ll love it, but for those of us who were waiting for a true sequel, we’d best be more patient.

    Overall Splinter Cell: Conviction is a let down for long time fans of the series, but as a game in its own right it is worthy of your attention.
